I'm looking into rolling some tubes in my F-50.
ive never done this before guys so any thoughts you may have I sure could use the info.

what tubes will directly fit the 50 w/o any mod or amp tech needed?
why does boogie want you to use their tubes only?
what I'm looking for is that "kick you in the nuts" tone at much lower volumes.

any suggestions?

I ended up with Svetlana winged c 6l6's, and a mix of Tungsol and JJ preamp tubes. If memory serves v1 and v2 were Tungsol, the rest JJ's. My F50 sounded like magic with that set up, really alive and punchy.
